A new interview with Robert reveals his thoughts about doing 3 series of Love/Hate:

Though viewers of Love/Hate were devastated when his character was killed off in the finale of series three, Robert Sheehan says the show’s creator had actually prepared for the actor to leave the series earlier, so sure was everyone that the Laois native would be moving on to bigger and brighter things.

“Stuart Carolan, having finished the second one, said, ‘Well, we’ve lost you now, haven’t we?’ And my representation and the people around me were all saying that two series was enough and we should leave it. But I wanted to see what they’d do with the third series, and Stuart’s enthusiasm is just infectious. He got me really excited about doing a third series. So it was a no-brainer, and I was delighted to be in it. But there was an understanding that three series would be it. I’m glad I got to go out on a high. It’s an amazing show.

On the subject of the Mortal Instruments:

Sheehan says that the prospect of starring in a couple of blockbuster movies was part of the project’s appeal.

“I did love the script, there was a great sense of adventure about it, so I chased it feverishly. But yeah, maybe there was a part of me thinking I wanted to do a big, exciting movie that could maybe be turned into a series of movies. That’d be immense.”

He also talked about filming Anita B and arguing with director Roberto Faenza:

The Italian film-maker is known for his weighty political dramas rather than his people skills, as Robert discovered.

“Yeah, he’s not exactly an actor’s director! He’s quite an odd character, to be honest with you. He kicked me out of a scene once! We were always arguing – well, challenging each other, anyway – and we had some heated interactions. So I had one disagreement when I thought I knew what my character would do in one scene and he threw a tantrum and kicked me out. I mean, it was the end of the day and I was being unhelpful. He’s an intense guy. He just has very set ideas about things. Originally, he wanted the film to be called Welcome To Freedom, which is just so tacky and overt, but thankfully we convinced him to change it!”
